  • Match's slightly wooden trajectory is compensated for by Patrick Stewart's compelling performance as the brash, outwardly confident but fundamentally lonely Tobi.

  • When a play is adapted for the screen, too often you can see the stitches.

  • It's great fun to watch Patrick Stewart in "Match," seeming to chew scenery (and actually doing so from time to time) but offering something else underneath.

    January 29, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Belber sometimes strains credulity to keep the characters together until the end, but Stewart carries the story to its conclusion with a performance ranging from the fierce to the tender.

  • This small film (virtually all of it filmed in Tobi's New York apartment) is a real gem.

  • Onscreen, the material seems contrived and thin. What must have been an electrifying clash of personalities onstage is over the top on film.

Audience Reviews for Match

  • Oct 09, 2015
    A couple interviews a choreographer, whose relation to them may be personal. Patrick Stewart, known principally for his work in science fiction, is in fact an incredible actor. He is one of the last, best examples of gravitas, and yet in this film, he proves himself to be capable of profound vulnerability, deft comic charm, and disarming fortitude. His performance in this three-character comic drama is the glue that holds the whole thing together, and there are moments when the other two actors can barely catch up. The story is fairly simple, and the plot unfolds predictably and even becomes a little maudlin by the end, but this is one film in which the journey truly is far more compelling than the destination. Overall, Stewart's work in this indie gem is its most noteworthy attribute.

    Patrick Stewart gives a singular performance as a resignedly broken and isolated man in the sunset of his career. Although the story is a bit inauthentic at times, the characters wonderfully portray their individual circumstances of isolation -- some chosen, some imposed, and some not fully realized. "Match" is a poignant film but it may have been better had it broken from its stage roots and allowed the characters to venture out of Tobias' apartment rather than awkwardly fumble through implausible impulses to remain in the same room together.
